Preparation

  • Wallpaper should be checked before cutting or hanging the rolls, as we will not accept any claims after hanging or cutting of the product. We cannot refund any amount of money for labour spent or incurred in hanging these papers.
  • Walls should be dry, Clean and even.

Pasting and Hanging

  • A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive is the ideal but a packet is also ok as long as it is mixed well.
  • Nina recommends this wallpaper paste it rolls on pink and dries clear! making wallpapering much easier.
  • The paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hand one length at the time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the paper. Butt joints and use a decorators brush to smooth down the wallcovering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles. Do not use a damp cloth.
  • Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
  • No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wallcovering.
